Geodesic Sphere

     Geodesic - the shortest line between two points that lies in a given surface.

      The sphere project was inspired by geodesic spheres in architecture. The sphere was to be made from individual segments of our design, being no larger than 12in x 12in. The sphere was to have a set diameter and have no internal supports.

     My group took the idea of geodesic in it's purest form and created curved segments to form the sphere. The sphere was modeled using Audodesk Rhino to ensure the curved pieces of wood were accurate. The wooden discs and sails were created using Autodesk AutoCAD.
